The Directions for a Climate Smart South Australia policy statement set the government’s agenda for practical, on-ground action to address climate related impacts.

The Directions will guide climate smart planning and action across government to drive low emissions jobs and growth, protect our environment, and support community resilience and wellbeing.

Note: This initiative is not youth specific but addresses priorities identified by young South Australians.
